About the Author

Geoffrey Malone spent most of his childhood in Africa, where he managed to avoid any formal education until the age of eleven. After school in England, he joined the army for sixteen years, then worked and travelled in North America. He became a broadcaster and wrote his first book about his nearest neighbours, a family of beavers: 'Brunner'. He lives happily in London with his wife and their cocker spaniel, Harriett, and advises charities dedicated to the preservation of endangered species. He has won the Children's Book of the Year prize in the French 'Tam-Tam, j'aime lire' competition, and the 'Prix Enfant-Grandparent Europeen', both for 'Torn Ear'. He was also recently shortlisted for the Stockton Award for 'Elephant Ben'.
